It is Holy Thursday, the first day of the Triduum.
For Catholics, “the summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ’s Paschal Mystery. The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil. The liturgical services that take place during the Triduum are the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, Good Friday of the Lord’s Passion, and the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord” (usccb.org).
It also happens to be the eve of our Body Prayer practice, and I wanted to share with you Mother Teresa’s thoughts on prayer:
“There is only one God and He is God to all; therefore it is important that everyone is seen as equal before God. I’ve always said we should help a Hindu become a better Hindu, a Muslim become a better Muslim, a Catholic become a better Catholic. We believe our work should be our example to people. We have among us 475 souls – 30 families are Catholics and the rest are all Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs—all different religions. But they all come to our prayers.”
I pray that our Body Prayer practice is a blessings to all who attend and that our moving meditation would be a gift to God who sees, hears, and knows our hearts, “for in Him we live and move and have our being” (St. Paul).
Many blessings for a Happy Easter!
